Rice at Chaucer 12/30

Parked on the sidewalk. Because cars are Entitled.

Aloft Hotel 12/25

That sign? It says 'parking for electric and low emissions vehicles'. Yes, that's a Blazer and a Mercedes.

22 December 2009

San Vicente from 26th to 19th 12/22

Doing about 50 or 55 down San Vicente. Speed limit is 35.

Rochedale at Hanley to Kenter at Sunset 12/22

This guy drove at the excessively prudent speed of 15mph all the way down, stopping at Stop Ahead signs, stop signs, yield signs, bump in the road signs, and anything else. Either it wasn't his truck or it was some seriously good acid.

19 December 2009

San Vicente at Bundy 12/19

So sitting at the light, watching the long line of cars turning left, I thought to myself, "I should get out the camera, someone's sure to run this light." Just then it turned green, and sure enough, here comes another car through the light. And then two more: a white Audi SUV and a blue minivan both just sailed through like it was green as the Grinch.

San Vicente at Darlington 12/18

This double dump truck pulled a massive U-turn here by just diving into traffic.

Kenter at the school 12/18

Parked in the red.

Channel at Mesa 12/18

The lady behind me ran the light so she could ride my bumper the 30 feet to the stopsign and then lean on her horn when I came to a full stop. So Entitled!

San Vicente at 26th 12/18

All those northbound cars have a red light and are just parked in the intersection.

16 December 2009

Cloverfield at Michigan 12/16

This left turn was made on a light so red that we were already halfway across the intersection when all of a sudden there's a car in our path. Not that I could SEE it with all the schmutz on my windshield. Thank goodness for The Force, huh?

Cloverfield at Michigan 12/16

Ran the light waaaaaay after it turned red.

26th at Broadway 12/16

Two cars ran the light.

Allenford at Brinkley 12/15

AFTER I took that last photo, this dark grey sedan came through the same red light.

Allenford at Brinkley 12/15

Ran the light.

Sunset at Cliffwood 12/15

This is all the picture I got because I had to brake and shift and steer to evade the silver Lexus trying to change lanes into me.

Kenter at the school 12/15

Parked in the red.

Kenter at the school 12/15

Parked in the fire zone. 'Cause she's on fire, I guess.

Kenter at the school 12/15

Parked in the red.

And when there aren't any spaces in the red zone left, we'll just park in the street.

Sunset at Church 12/14

Blocking the intersection.

Strathmore at Gayley 12/14

Had to be in front of us so forced her way in. No signal of course.

Kenter at Sunset 12/14

Ran the light.

Santa Monica at Bundy 12/14

Gotta love that channeled patriotism!

Bundy at Santa Monica 12/14

See that guy walking? He's holding his phone to his head with one hand. The other hand? Holding up his pants.

Bundy at Santa Monica 12/14

Running the light.

Sepulveda above Wilshire 12/14

If I drove a spankin' new Bentley I wouldn't drive it three feet from the back of everyone else, nor would I dodge and weave and cut people off with it. Or maybe I would, but I'd at least wait 'til I got my DMV plates.

Hanley above Hanley 12/14

Just parked in the middle of the street, straddling the double yellow line, just out of sight on the fast uphill blind curve.

Kenter at Sunset 12/14

Ran the light.

Allenford at Brinkley 12/14

Ran the light x 3. Plus there are a heap of folks who come out of the school turning left, forcing folks on the street turning right to let them pass. Hey guys, heads up! Left turns cede the right of way, especially when you're pulling out onto the street.

Allenford at Brinkley 12/14

Ran the light.

The dining room 12/13

Done eating!

11 December 2009

Kenter at Sunset 12/11

Ran the light. In the dark. In the rain.

10 December 2009

San Vicente from 26th to Gretna Green 12/10

This lady was a piece of work. On the phone, she first honked at me when the light turned green. Never mind the 15 cars between me and the intersection. Then she whipped aound me and in front, only to be stuck behind the same exterminator truck I was behind. Then she zigged and zagged, tailgating at 2-3 feet sometimes. When we got to Gretna Green she turned left from the right lane and ran the stop sign. Someone's in a big hurry!

San Vicente from 17th to 7th 12/10

Tailgating and speeding and diving in front of cars. And here we all are at the signal.

Kenter at Sunset. 12/10

Running the light.
